Integrated Foundation Year Welcome Pack

Welcome to Integrated Foundation Year 2022.

The Integrated Foundation Year is a fantastic way of starting your degree level studies. You will spend the year learning more about university level study, gaining really useful skills and experience and preparing yourself for independent life. You will gain more self-confidence as well as a better understanding of the degree that you are planning to study. Your tutors are experts at learning how to learn as well as experts in their own subjects.

Integrated Foundation Year leadership team

The Integrated Foundation Year is made up of four distinct subject areas, each with a team leader:

Team Leader, Arts Group
Team Leader, Science and Health Group
Team Leader, Business, Marketing and Management Group
Team Leader, Development, Education & Law Group


Enhancing skills, building networks and engaging in the wider University community

In your Integrated Foundation year, we will be working closely with the Changemaker Hub team to explore social & environmental problems so that you can gain experience in how they are tackled to make the world a better place. We believe that this also improves your profile when it comes to getting jobs. Some activities will happen in class, but we will also encourage you start the Changemaker Award outside the class.
